Poll Position

Waiting for a public bus in any town can be not only mind numbingly boring but a very uncomfortable experience. In bigger cities, sharing a bus bench/bed with a passed out drunkard is not uncommon. For those not even lucky enough to share these precious moments in life and have to stand and wait for our environmentally responsible public transportation, I present the “Duv-tal” public transportation insta-squat seating system by Catherine Pena. If you forget to bring some reading materials don’t fret, this fold-down seat not only lets you cop a squat but also validates in the form of this inspiring message printed on the surface “You are a role model. You are actively improving the environment by riding the bus.” Warm fuzzies all around.
